The International Association Of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) and the International Association Of Hydro-geologists (IAH) are organizing the 8th Scientific Assembly and 37th Congress, respectively, at the HICC, from 6th to 12th September. The theme of the IAHS/IAH JIC is 'Water: Vital Resource Under Stress- How Science Can Help,' and the IAH sessions will focus on the 'Hydro-Geology Of Hard Rock'. The exhibition and sessions are on from 9am to 9pm.
Members from the world's scientific and professional community, policy makers, executives and NGOs are part of the event. The joint convention will be held under one roof, providing an opportunity for members to interact, share and discuss their experiences, issues of mutual interest and also initiate joint research programmes to address varied hydrological problems of local and global importance.
The topics of symposia and workshops are as follows:
- Eco hydrology of surface and groundwater dependent ecosystems: Concepts, methods and recent developments
- Trends and sustainability of groundwater in highly stressed aquifers
- Improving integrated surface and groundwater resources management in a vulnerable and changing world
- Hydroinformatics in hydrology, hydrogeology and water resources
Measuring and modelling interactions between surface water and groundwater
Transboundary water management: Science and policy
Rural and urban water systems: Minimising adverse impacts of global change on water resources
Isotope tracing for water balance, hydrodynamics and hydrological processes, including groundwater recharge, as an indicator of water resources sustainability
High mountain snow and ice hydrology
New approaches to hydrological prediction in data sparse regions
Hydrological theory and limits to hydrological predictability in ungauged basins
